The first trailer for “Trouble With the Curve” — a new baseball dramedy starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake — has arrived online. Eastwood did not direct this movie. But in it, he does appear to be playing a baseball scout version of his character from “Gran Torino” while the cast as a whole appears to be starring in this year’s answer to “Moneyball.”
The film’s release date was recently bumped up to Sept. 21, which — hey, wouldn’t you know — is very close to the same date on which “Moneyball” was released last year. Is “Trouble With the Curve” as good as the Brad Pitt Oscar contender? We’ll have to wait and see. With a cast like this, it at least boasts a promising starting line-up.
